Chicken Coop Floor

I was feeling inspired on Thursday to paint the chicken coop floor (our storage area, not where the chickens live). Eddie had floor paint left over from his shop floor, so I used that and rolled on two coats.
I'm not sure what the chicks were thinking about all this, but they didn't seem too disturbed.
I'd like to paint the four hanging doors that open up for us to reach in and fill the feed and water, and where the nest boxes are, too. But I haven't decided if they'll be red or white yet.
The white will get totally covered in red clay dust, so probably red is better (plus we've got more of it). It doesn't bother me on the floor, because I can sweep that or hose it down once in a while.
